Our Lead Service Line Replacement Program allows us to replace lead service lines at zero cost to the homeowner if certain requirements are met. If you do not meet the requirements and still want to have your lead service line replaced, you are responsible for the costs of the replacement.
Tenants should contact their landlords about a lead service line replacement.
We notify property owners if there is a potential or verified lead line serving the property. Property owners received a notice from the Grand Rapids Water System in February 2020.

Property owners are responsible for notifying their tenants of the notice.
